Eric Tomlinson will look to regain the momentum be brought from Texas to Super Nationals when Modified qualifying resumes tonight.
The Waco hotshoe capped off his run to the Heart O’ Texas track title with the win on championship night at his hometown track.
“We let a good race get away (on Wednesday) when we pulled off after half a lap after starting outside front row,” he said. “But we have more chances.”
Tomlinson won three times at HO’T, racing with the likes of long-time friend Kevin Green and former national champion William Gould, and topped three of his four starts at Cotton Bowl Speedway. He’s raced a Modified since 2009 and won a “B” feature in his first visit to Boone last year.
“I like the atmosphere and the people here. This is truly a racing vacation,” he said. “Ideally, we want to win Super Nationals. We don’t go anywhere to run second, but making the show here is an impressive feat in its own.”
